Rosie and Molly, next to come from the Sodor OO Workshop!

Rosie and Molly, are the next new models in line for work from the Sodor OO Workshop.




There is a large gap in the Thomas & Friends market for female characters, and since Molly and Rosie are not currently available from Bachmann, Hornby e.t.c.  It is only fitting that they are undertaken as a personal project, the models chosen for these two have been decided already, and both will be built using well known kitbashing methods and some scratchbuilding.

Molly i am hoping to render using a B12 bodyshell, with some heavy modifications made to it, to ensure the belpaire firbox and running plate are identical to the above image of Molly from Season Nine.

  1. Terrific to see Molly finally making her way from the Sodor OO Workshops!
    I think the firebox will be the only real issue here. I still can't understand why Molly's running plate has that odd dividing point.. what appears to be a line on the footplate is in fact due to the part near the smokebox being separate from the rest of the board!
    I look forward to seeing how you do her, and how you pull of her face..

    The first Rosie looked rather nice, but I'm glad you're doing a second. Certain issues can be rectified finally, like the smokebox to tank size ratio(Did feel it was a bit.. big.. for Rosie), and again she's an engine I look forward to seeing how you pull off.

    I'll be keeping my eye out for updates on the two girls..! :)
    Keep up the good work.
